Laila Ali on Dad Muhammad’s Passing: I Know ‘He’s His Plain, Free Self Again’

It’s been less than a year since the world lost boxing champion Muhammad Ali and Laila Ali lost her father to a 35-year battle with Parkinson’s disease — but Laila is content that he’s is in a much better place.

“I always talk about my dad. I have no problem with it. He did pass,” she said at the world premiere of the film Gun—in which she has a cameo role as a reporter—at the Beverly Hills Film Festival in Hollywood on Wednesday night.

“We have comfort knowing he’s in a better place now. He struggled hard with this disease for 35 years. He did an amazing job, still doing humanitarian work, being an inspiration to so many people with illness and in general.  So I love him for that.  He’s truly missed.”

The boxing legend died on June 3, 2016 after being hospitalized with a respiratory issue. He was 74.

Though Laila misses her father, she said that he is probably more free now than he was when he was fighting to stay alive.

“My dad wasn’t himself for so many years. It was like a shell of himself, in a body. He couldn’t really communicate the way that he wanted to,” Laila recalled.

“So it’s not like it was so sudden. It was kind of a progression. Like I said, I really do have comfort in knowing that now he’s his plain, free self again, talking, moving, boxing, doing whatever he wants to do. We’ll meet again.”

The TV host, author, actress, lifestyle podcaster and mom of two was excited about plans to get together with her siblings to celebrate her dad’s legacy on Father’s Day.

“I have a podcast, Laila Ali Lifestyle … I talk about fitness, health, wellness and parenting,” she said. “I’m really looking forward to Father’s Day because I want to do a special with my sisters, just our memories of my dad. So I’m looking forward to that.”

She also put to rest the rumors that there was any feuding over inheritance after her father’s passing.

“There’s nine of us. We’re definitely not feuding,” she said. “That’s not true. That’s tabloid stuff. We’ve never been feuding.”

When it comes to boxing, Ali said there is sometimes more to it than her dad.

The film Gun, in which Laila appears, is also about a boxer. This one is a washed-up alcoholic who makes a come back to fight after his top heavyweight contender son is wrongfully blinded in the ring.

“My father is way bigger than boxing. He’s a global icon,” she said when asked if being involved in the film reminded her of her father. “So I don’t even think, oh my dad, any time I think of boxing. I’m a boxer myself. I would think of me before I thought of my dad.”

Laila’s passion now is in women’s empowerment.

“I’m really excited about a project I’m doing with T.J. Maxx, called The Maxx You Project,” she continued. “It’s really encouraging women to embrace the things about themselves that make them unique.”

“I’m always normal and real,” she said, adding jokingly, “We had an episode on vagina 101, for women that had children who want to know some things about tightening it back up. We get real real. So I’m having fun. I’m talking about things that I want to talk about.”

Gosha Rubchinskiy to Show in Saint Petersburg, Russia

Gosha Rubchinskiy will present his spring 2018 collection in Saint Petersburg, Russia.
The Russian men’s wear designer, who has gained a cult following for his Nineties influenced pieces that are rooted in Moscow’s skate culture, is continuing his traveling show concept and has opted to present in Russia’s popular port city, which is on the Baltic Sea. The show, which will take place on June 11, also aligns with the 2018 World Cup that’s happening across Russia this year. Rubchinskiy has a partnership with Adidas Football.
Last season, Rubchinskiy presented his collection in Kaliningrad, a remote city in Russia that’s along the Baltic Coast. The runway show took place in a building that used to operate as a youth cultural center during the Soviet era, a time period that the designer consistently references.
“The Russian market is very important for us — and for me, it’s important that Russians wear Gosha. I am pretty sure the Adidas collaboration will further grow the brand locally,” Rubchinskiy previously told WWD.
For editors who can’t make it to Russia, the line will be showcased at the Comme des Garçons showroom in Paris from June 24 to June 27.
The designer, photographer and filmmaker introduced his label in 2008

Daunting as “Death in America: Selections From the Zadig & Voltaire collection” sounds, these pieces that will be sold at Christie’s upcoming Post-War and Contemporary Art sales in New York serve a greater good.
The founder of the French label Thierry Gillier is putting more than 40 works under the gavel with a portion of the proceeds earmarked to help fight the escalating ecological crisis.

Eleven works will be sold on May 17 at the evening sale and 35 lots will be on the block at the May 18 afternoon sale. Combined they are expected to drum up more than $ 20 million.

Urs Fischer’s “Sodium” painting is also in the mix starting at $ 700,000. The Zadig & Voltaire collection is named for Steven Parrino’s “Death in America #1,” 2003, which is estimated to run between $ 800,000 and

Guess, Peace Over Violence Host Maya Jupiter, Aloe Blacc Concert

Aloe Blacc and Maya Jupiter serenaded Santa Monica Wednesday evening as part of the Guess Foundation and nonprofit Peace Over Violence’s Denim Day.
The annual day encourages people to wear denim in solidarity to raise awareness and fight against sexual violence, which is Peace Over Violence’s mission. The non-profit provides therapy, hotlines and other aid to victims in addition to educational initiatives.
Blacc and Jupiter, who serve as Denim Day spokespeople, took over one end of the Third Street Promenade outdoor shopping mall in Santa Monica for a live performance that was open to the public. Guess also set up a temporary pop-up in front of its Third Street Promenade store to hand out T-shirts and tote bags in an effort to raise additional awareness for the day.
The spokescouple are a good fit for the cause as individuals who are actively involved in a number of community organizations. Blacc and Jupiter are also cofounders of the Artivist Entertainment group, which supports like-minded artists involved in efforts for social good.
Jupiter became involved in Peace Over Violence through a friend employed with the organization who encouraged her to participate in songwriting classes for a youth internship program.

Caitlyn Jenner On Trump, Kendall’s Pepsi Ad, Her Beef With Ellen And Being Catcalled

Caitlyn Jenner is currently in the middle of a massive publicity tour for her new tell-air memoir, The Secrets Of My Life, which hit stores Tuesday.

After catching up with Diane Sawyer on Friday ― almost exactly two years after she came out as transgender on ABC’s “20/20” ― Jenner made stops at “Good Morning America,” Fox News and “Live With Kelly.” And on Tuesday she dropped by HuffPost for an in depth, nearly hour-long interview. 

The 67-year-old Olympian and reality TV star was in high spirits and opened up about a wide range of topics, from President Donald Trump to Kendall’s controversial Pepsi ad to her beef with Ellen DeGeneres, as well as her thoughts on womanhood and being catcalled.

On Trump and reconciling her identity as a Republican with her identity as a member of the transgender community:

“What I’d say to Donald Trump is, “Be true to yourself.” You said during the whole campaign — and actually I did talk to him during the campaign on the phone about transgender issues and the entire LGBT community — and he was nothing but in support. He was great on the phone and I complimented him… I thought we might be OK here. But it turned around for me when the whole Title IX thing went down…”

On Kim Kardashian being the first of her children she told about being trans and what Kim taught her about being a woman:

“Kim is so curious, so openminded. She goes, ‘What the hell is going on with you?’… Eventually, years down the line [after I initially came out to Kim], I decided, OK, I’m finally at a point in my life where my kids are all grown, it’s time for me, I have to live my life authentically, and I told Kim, I said, ‘I’m doing it,’ and her reaction was ‘Well then, girl, you’d better rock it! If you’re going to do this, you can’t go out and let the paparazzi get a picture of you just absolutely disheveled…’”

On Kendall Jenner’s controversial Pepsi ad:

“Honestly I felt very sorry for Kendall. It’s kind of like, sometimes, ‘welcome to the real world.’ We live in a very tough political environment, social environment. You have massive amounts of media looking for a story and obviously some people were looking at that commercial very differently than the way I was looking at it. I get that. And Kendall gets that too. She didn’t mean any malice. She goes, ‘I’m just a model that was hired for a job to go in there and do this…’”

On her feelings about Ellen DeGeneres, after claiming in her memoir that her appearance on the comedian’s show and DeGeneres’ subsequent actions “further alienated [her] from members of the LGBTQ community”:

“I don’t hold a grudge against nobody. Would I do the show again? Ehh… I don’t know. Maybe it’d be good to do the show just to get it out with Ellen. I’d rather do it in private over dinner. I really don’t want to do it publicly. I just was hurt by that — especially because that was at the beginning…”

On womanhood and being catcalled:

“Yesterday we were walking over to Tavern On The Green… and some guy — it was like the construction worker guy — starts yelling at me… he was yelling some rude remark that you’d say to some woman. And I just started laughing because I didn’t grow up like that, as a woman who got all of that stuff. It was just kind of funny. It happens all the time — that’s what women go through. Courtney, my hairstylist, was with me and she goes [dismissively waves] ‘yeah…’ She’s used to that. She’s had all that yelling at but I haven’t. So, yeah, there are a lot of things in life ― of womanhood ― that I did not experience… I’ll always consider myself a trans woman because I missed a lot of stuff. And trans women are good!”

Caitlyn Jenner’s memoir, The Secrets Of My Life, is now available.

Ian Somerhalder And Nikki Reed Celebrate Wedding Anniversary With Touching Notes

If these two don’t make you want to hold your significant other a little closer, then you truly might be a vampire. 

“Vampire Diaries” star Ian Somerhalder and “Twilight” actress Nikki Reed took to Instagram on Wednesday to celebrate their second wedding anniversary. The pair each posted sweet notes and photos, sharing their love with each other and their fans. 

Somerhalder, 38, posted a close-up shot of himself and Reed on their big day, writing, “To the most amazing human in the world. Thank you for 2 incredible years of marriage. Today, two years ago to the minute, we said ‘I do’ and I couldn’t be happier or more grateful to you for this life. Thank you for being my best friend the hardest-working, kindest, most patient and most talented woman I’ve ever known. To you my love, I say that I know we will have so many of these we can’t even count them. Partly because I’ll be so old… I love you.”

Reed, 28, wrote an equally beautiful message to her husband, calling him “my guy, my man, my honey, my partner in this life, my better half in every way.” 

Alongside a black-and-white image of the two smooching at their wedding, she wrote, “At exactly this time two years ago today we walked hand in hand into the next chapter, our chapter, together. Every day gets better, every moment calling for even more. Navigating the waters of life with you is the greatest and most rewarding adventure I’ve ever known. We climb, we grow, and we laugh at all of it. Thank you for being exactly who you are, and for loving all of me. Thank you for your willingness to go even deeper. Until you, I had no idea what could be. Until you…Happy Anniversary ❤.”

Somerhalder and Reed tied the knot on April 26, 2015, during a sunset ceremony in Santa Monica, California. They began dating shortly after Reed split with her first husband, Paul McDonald, and Somerhalder ended his relationship with “Vampire Diaries” co-star Nina Dobrev. The couple got engaged in January 2015, and the rest is a lovely, romantic history.

The Best ‘Lazy Games’ For Exhausted Parents To Play With Their Kids

Playing with energetic kids can be pretty exhausting. But thankfully the funny ladies of The BreakWomb have a solution.

In their newest comedy video, “Lazy Games to Play With Kids,” the moms share some of their favorite ways to avoid expending energy. The “lazy games” for parents include playing lifeguard (and casting yourself as the swimmer waiting to be saved), playing doctor (and casting yourself as the patient undergoing surgery) and playing superheroes (and casting yourself as the captive needing to be rescued by Superman, Wonder Woman or Spider-Man).

There’s also the tactic of playing hide and seek but never actually looking for your hiding child or the classic “Who Can Keep Their Eyes Closed The Longest?”

We’re sensing a pattern here…

Dr. Luke’s Company Owes Most Of Its Billboard Success To Kesha

Dr. Luke’s ongoing legal battle with Kesha amid sexual assault allegations seemingly led to his long-anticipated removal as CEO of Kemosabe Records, The Hollywood Reporter noted this week

Quick reminder: Dr. Luke and his company, which he founded with Sony, owe the pop star most of its success.

Billboard produced a history of Kemosabe’s history on its top chart, the Hot 100, on Wednesday, reporting that 22 songs by Kemosabe artists have made the list. Of those, 13 came from Kesha. The company also holds two No. 1 hits: 2010’s “TiK ToK” and “We Are Who We R,” both by Kesha. Seven of the eight Kemosabe songs that have reached the list’s top 10 range belong to Kesha, too.

Kemosabe isn’t a big label, and Kesha is its most famous artist. Yet despite the fact that its biggest star claimed she was being abused by her producer, it took two and a half years before Sony nudged Dr. Luke, whose real name is Lukasz Gottwald, out of the picture. According to The Guardian, his role as CEO terminated on March 31

That sluggish decision reportedly came down to simple bad PR. A source told The Wrap that Gottwald’s legal entanglements, which date back to 2014, had turned into “a public relations headache” for Sony. Both sides have waged a war in the media, most recently as the singer released damning emails from Gottwald, prompting him to respond in turn.

Kesha now has not released an album since 2012’s “Warrior,” although a judge has ruled she is free to work with another producer under the Sony umbrella, and she released a song with Zedd one year ago.

The Hot 100 is waiting for her return.

Most Of The ‘Game Of Thrones’ Theories You’re Reading Are True, Says Nikolaj Coster-Waldau

All men must die, except Jaime Lannister ― he’s not ready yet. 

That’s according to Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who plays the Kingslayer on “Game of Thrones,” set to return with Season 7 on July 16. During an interview with HuffPost on Build Series Monday, the actor refused to name the character he would like to see kill Jaime on the show, saying instead, “I don’t want Jaime to die. I want him to just slowly fade away. Just old age.”

As for other spoilers, Coster-Waldau says they’re definitely out there, and confirms that most of those leaks and theories on the internet are correct. 

“What’s interesting, though, is every year there are huge spoilers online where people find out real stuff and they will post it, and you go, ‘Oh my God, they just spoiled the whole season online!’ But then, because there’s 10,000 other spoilers out there, they’re not real. It just gets lost in the shuffle,” he told HuffPost. “So, it’s all out there by the way … if you can find it.” 

One of the biggest theories floating around Reddit after the Season 6 finale involved that look Jaime gave Cersei (Lena Headey) when he saw her sitting on the Iron Throne. Fans believe Jaime, like he did with King Aerys II Targaryen, will kill his own sister and lover, due to the fact that she’s slowly becoming the Mad Queen

“People are really reading into that look … I was just going through my grocery list,” Coster-Waldau joked before addressing the theory. “I was very into the scene. It’s interesting, though, how much you read into a look like that, because, it’s like, ‘Oh, clearly he’s going to leave her now. There’s no question. This is it. This is reminding him why he killed the Mad King. Now he’s going to go and kill Cersei. There’s no question about it.’ And it might happen, who knows? I mean, I know, but …” 

(TELL US! But, yeah, don’t.)

 As for Jaime’s former BFF and possible love interest, Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie), the actor says his character is not jealous in the slightest of her seemingly budding romance with Tormund (Kristofer Hivju).

“I don’t think [Jaime] gave her away. I don’t think he’s jealous,” Coster-Waldau said with a smile. “I think it’s a perfect couple ― I think Tormund would rock her world.” 

No matter who kills whom or who dates whom, “Game of Thrones” Season 7 is set to be epic. And, well, chilly. 

“Winter is here,” Coster-Waldau confirmed to HuffPost, adding of the season, “I hope [fans will be satisfied]. I know we did our best. Everyone worked their asses off.”

Watch the full interview with Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, in which he talks about “Game of Thrones” and his new flick “Small Crimes,” below. “Small Crimes” hits Netflix on Friday.

A Visual History of Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War 3

Taglines don’t get much more bleak than the one for Warhammer 40,000: “In the grim darkness of the far future, there is only war.” In addition to spawning the term “grimdark,” that tagline does a good job of letting players know what they’re in for once they enter this endlessly violent sci-fi universe.

Many video games have been set in this fictional realm, but Relic Entertainment’s Dawn of War series is probably the most highly regarded. Ever since its 2004 debut, fans have been blasting their way through futuristic war zones, eradicating every enemy on the map. With the third installment just around the corner, let’s go back to the beginning to see how far this series has come.

Pope Francis Warns Leaders to Be Humble in Surprise TED Talk from Vatican City: ‘Your Power Will Ruin You’

Pope Francis promoted humility and warned of the dangers of too much power in a sobering TED Talk delivered straight from Vatican City.

In his recorded TED Talk shown on Tuesday at TED’s international conference in Vancouver, the 80-year-old spoke out about compassion and caring for others, but also used the opportunity to warn arrogant leaders.

“Please, allow me to say it loud and clear,” he began. “The more powerful you are, the more your actions will have an impact on people, the more responsible you are to act humbly. If you don’t, your power will ruin you, and you will ruin the other.”

 

The remarks come about a week after White House press secretary Sean Spicer said at a press briefing that Donald Trump would “be honored” to meet the Pope. Although the president and the pontiff haven’t seen eye to eye in the past, Archbishop Angelo Becciu told the Italian news agency ANSA that “Pope Francis is always ready to receive heads of state who request an audience.”

The Pope drew on his own family’s circumstances when encouraging listeners to care for the needy. He said he often wonders how his grandparents, migrants from Italy who moved to Argentina, would have done in today’s “culture of waste.”

“I could have very well ended up among today’s ‘discarded’ people. And that’s why I always ask myself, deep in my heart: ‘Why them and not me?’ ” he said.

Pope Francis Throws a Pizza Party for 1,500 Homeless People to Honor Mother Teresa

It took more than a year for TED officials to convince the Pope to participate in the conference, CNN reports. And Bruno Giussani, the TED international curator who organized the Pope’s talk, hailed His Holiness as the “only moral voice” capable of reaching people across boundaries.

In his nearly 18-minute address, the Pope declared: “A single individual is enough for hope to exist, and that individual can be you. And then there will be another ‘you,’ and another ‘you,’ and it turns into an ‘us.’ And so, does hope begin when we have an ‘us?’ No. Hope began with one ‘you.’ When there is an ‘us,’ there begins a revolution.”

CFDA Awards Under New Creative Direction

The CFDA Awards will have a new look this year, thanks to a change in the creative teams that will work on the awards. After years of working with Laird + Partners, the CFDA has enlisted The Creative Group, Condé Nast to develop all of the print digital materials surrounding the event, including the invitations and the nominees’ videos.
“It’s always nice to try something different and freshen it up,” said Steven Kolb, president and chief executive officer of the CFDA, of the decision to work with The Creative Group over Laird + Partners. “We put out an RP and got a number of proposals and landed on The Creative Group.”
The invitation design, which features quotes from designers — “I don’t design clothes. I design dreams,” Ralph Lauren; “We need leaders,” Public School — in graphic, colorful blocks, will also be distributed as a poster, and will be plastered around the city leading up to the event. “We want the awards to have a sense of playfulness and also New York casualness. The quotes give a voice to designers and the members of the CFDA,” Kolb said.
The printed CFDA Awards journal has been discontinued in favor of a digital portfolio. Portraits

Tom Hardy Is Now A Real Action Hero After Reportedly Stopping Thief

Maybe Tom Hardy isn’t acting that much after all.

The action star became a real-life hero recently after reportedly helping to thwart a crime. According to BBC News, police said Hardy apprehended a man on Sunday who had allegedly stolen a motorbike in London.

The story goes that Hardy got involved after two teenagers crashed a stolen bike into a car in Richmond, south-west London. The alleged thieves tried to take off, but Hardy supposedly tracked one down. (You can’t outrun the guy who starred in “Mad Max”). The other was arrested by police.

A Richmond Police spokesman confirmed to BBC that two 16-year-olds were arrested on suspicion of theft of a motor vehicle, and that Tom Hardy was involved in their detainment:

“We can confirm that there were two people on a stolen moped that went through a red light and crashed into another vehicle.

“The males ran off and one was detained by Tom Hardy.

“Both suspects were initially taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.”

A Metropolitan Police spokesman later clarified the stolen vehicle was a motorbike and that members of the public detained the rider.

The incident may have been even crazier. The Sun and Vanity Fair published quotes from one reported witness, who described Hardy as “mental – like he’d switched to superhero.”

According to this witness, Hardy’s route to catch the criminal was like “an assault course.” The action star supposedly even “vaulted walls.”

And that’s why Hardy is the “Bane” of criminals everywhere.

Tom Hardy’s reps have yet to comment on the incident to HuffPost.

This Guy Started Crying When He Saw His Girlfriend In Her Prom Dress

Sometimes, a facial expression really does say it all. 

On Saturday, Nolanah Garcia, a high school senior at Southside High School in San Antonio, Texas, brought Devin Collier, her boyfriend of three years, to tears when he saw her in her prom dress for the first time. On Sunday, she shared several sweet photos of the big reveal on Twitter, which have since been retweeted more than 31,000 times: 

“Here was Devin’s reaction & me telling him to stop crying cause I was gonna cry and mess up my makeup,” she wrote on Twitter

Nolanah looked stunning in a royal blue crop top and skirt set by Sherri Hill from Gautier Formal Dresses. Devin ― who graduated from the same high school two years ago ― was visibly overcome with emotion.

“I really didn’t expect Devin’s reaction,” she told HuffPost. “But he got teary-eyed and I saw tears coming out, which made me react by tearing up too.” 

“I just felt so loved actually, I wanted to cry seeing him cry over me,” she told Teen Vogue.

Devin and Nolanah weren’t the only ones getting misty-eyed. Twitter was also hit right in the feels by the heartwarming moment:

“He’s a great boyfriend,” Nolanah told HuffPost. “He’s always taking care of me and making sure I’m happy. He’s honestly the best I could ask for.”

In A Bold New Book, Earth Is Left Uninhabitable By War

Lidia Yuknavitch’s latest novel, The Book of Joan, pays homage to a figure who’s inspired the author since her Catholic upbringing: a woman and a martyr, Joan of Arc. In an interview with The Rumpus, Yuknavitch explained how the historic idol allowed her to turn her suffering into “something more like girl power,” and her novel makes that personal connection clear.

Honoring the story of 1400s Joan, Yuknavitch’s book follows another Joan on a near-future expedition. As a girl, she learns that she’s intimately connected with Earth, down to her anatomy, which includes a blue light that emits from her forehead, coinciding, it seems, with the planet’s pain. As war happens ― suddenly and everywhere ― child soldiers are enlisted, and Joan’s oneness with the natural world is used as a weapon. She also discovers she has the power to bring the dead back to life, for a short time.

These skills turn her into a symbol of hope, one the tyrannical Jean de Men aims to destroy. The dictator reins over CIEL, a space home inhabited by humans whose skin has lost its pigmentation and whose genitals have become shriveled and useless. In this new society, there are no books, only stories branded onto skin through a process called grafting.

One expert grafter, Christine (after Christine de Pizan, a medieval writer who criticized poet Jean de Meun’s work about courtly love), wears Joan’s story and believes that, although Joan was burned alive, she’s still living and thriving somewhere down on Earth. She hopes to lead a coup against Jean de Men, who’s working to restore human genitalia not for pleasure, but for reproduction.

Meanwhile, Joan roams Earth with Leone ― her closest friend ― exploring deep caves where life thrives in the form of worms and bugs. Yuknavitch’s stellar prose is most alive here, when she’s lovingly describing the natural world ― its beauty and brutality.

As a story, The Book of Joan is something new altogether. The characters moralize. They give speeches, they lay out their philosophical views, and they seldom act in ways that contradict their beliefs. So, the effect is like that of reading a comic book ― or medieval text ― infused with lines of perfect poetry. There are heroes and villains. The heroes act heroically, and the villains, corrupted by power, enact evil deeds without remorse. Jean de Men’s “gross train of flesh [is] splayed out on the floor.” His voice is “reptilian.” “He aims his words with measured venom.”

This is not a conventional approach to contemporary literature or science fiction; both genres aim to create characters who are as morally complex as most humans. (Individuals are large, remember? They contain multitudes.) But, Yuknavitch isn’t a conventional writer, and has, in fact, devoted her career to rethinking conventions.

She runs a writing workshop called Corporeal Writing, where budding authors’ intuitions are valued and where politically engaged work is encouraged. In the description for one of the courses, the program’s site reads, “A cohesive narrative can happen any number of ways.  It can be an accumulation of fragments, it can be kaleidoscopic, it can by lyric, braided, circular, vertical, visual, it can be arranged as a palimpsest.”

Kaleidoscopic, lyric ― these words nicely fit Yuknavitch’s style, which is especially suited to the passages wherein Christine is telling the story of Joan, who, to her, is a symbol of hope.

But, aside from her descriptions of her heroes, her fantasies, and her beliefs, we’re not given access to Christine’s life on CIEL. This book will appeal less to readers interested in worldbuilding and in individuals navigating future social systems ― a la Ursula K. Le Guin, more anthropologist than philosopher. It is, instead, an homage to an idol, an ode to a way of life, and a warning about mistreating the earth and each other. All of that’s wrapped up in a voice that’s uniquely Yuknavitch’s, which is worth reading for alone.  

The bottom line:

More poetic creed than conventional story, The Book of Joan shows off Yuknavitch’s imagination and her gift for crafting sonorous sentences.

Who wrote it:

Lidia Yuknavitch is the author of The Chronology of Water and The Small Backs of Children, which we named one of HuffPost’s Best Books of 2015.

Who will read it:

Anyone interested in fiction that grapples with gender, climate change or near-future scenarios.

What other reviewers think:

The New York Times: “Telling the truth with precision and rage and a visionary’s eye, using both realism and fabulism, is one way to break through the white noise of a consumerist culture that tries to commodify post-apocalyptic fiction, to render it safe.”

LARB: “Perhaps it is only ‘natural’ that in a book that brings together so many different strains of history, literature, theory, and even science, some parts are bound to contradict others.”

NPR: “Yuknavitch is a bold and ecstatic writer, wallowing in sex and filth and decay and violence and nature and love with equal relish.”

Opening lines:

“Burning is an art.”

Notable passage:

“Leone, whose small heart had a defect at birth, who carried a heart that started out in a pig. Xenotransplantation and Leone had become Joan’s favorite words. Xenotransplantation represented a change in the distance between people and animals in a way she loved. Leone represented Leone, just Leone, Leone.”

‘Hot Convict’ Jeremy Meeks Deported From London

The American lawbreaker who became a viral internet sensation as the “hot convict” because of his visually arresting mugshot won’t get a chance to show England he’s become a model citizen.

Jeremy Meeks, 33, now a fashion model who had traveled to London for a photo shoot, was deported Monday night from Heathrow Airport because of his previous criminal record, according to the Daily Mail.

“I’ve been denied,” Meeks said as he walked through the airport, according to “Inside Edition.” “London don’t want me here. I done served my time. S*** is crazy. Don’t make no sense.”

Meeks, became known as the “hot convict” in June 2014 after the Stockton Police Department in California arrested him on weapons and gang charges, and his mugshot went viral. He spent two years behind bars, and was freed in March 2016. 

The “hot con” has been working as a fashion model since February. But he never got beyond the airport for his London assignment.

Meeks’ manager, Joe Jordan, said his client’s paperwork to enter the U.K. was in order. Meeks also had a letter from his parole officer giving him permission to travel, according to the New York Daily News.

None of that held any sway with U.K. immigration officials, who escorted him onto a plane eight hours after he landed in London.

Jordan told the Daily Mail he hopes Meeks’ visa problem is temporary.

“He was on the right track for what we feel was going to be his new life. Now he’s very sad,” Jordan said. “Hopefully this is just a setback and he will be able to come back from this.”

Jeff Goldblum Serves Free Sausages To People Because He’s Jeff Goldblum

Like a magnificently aged wine, Jeff Goldblum is still a fantastic human decades after we first met him. He continues to win us over, and he’s currently doing so with sausages.

After the recent announcement that Goldblum will be returning to the “Jurassic Park” franchise in “Jurassic World 2,” he appeared inside a food truck in Sydney, Australia, on Wednesday. From said food truck, Goldblum was apparently handing out FREE sausages!

We know, we know ― Dr. Ian Malcolm is returning to the big screen. That is INSANELY marvelous. But also: FREE SAUSAGES FROM JEFF GOLDBLUM.

Is this heaven? Are we still alive?

“Chef Goldblum’s” truck began its afternoon trip at Wynyard Station before wandering into the Circular Quay area of Sydney.

The photos from fans on social media have been truly iconic:

Ivanka Trump Faces Groans, Boos and Tough Questions About Her Father on Official Berlin Trip

Not long after Ivanka Trump arrived in Berlin for her first international trip as part of the White House administration for President Donald Trump, she was tasked with defending her father’s attitudes towards women.

At the invitation of German Chancellor Angela Merkel, the first daughter participated in the W20 Summit alongside Merkel, Queen Maxima of the Netherlands and five others for a panel on women’s entrepreneurship on Tuesday. However, Trump was immediately grilled by the moderator and met by a skeptical audience.

“You’re the first daughter of the United States, and you’re also an assistant to the president,” the moderator, WirtschaftsWoche editor-in-chief Miriam Meckel, asked her first, according to Politico. “The German audience is not that familiar with the concept of a first daughter. I’d like to ask you, what is your role, and who are you representing, your father as president of the United States, the American people, or your business?”

“Certainly not the latter,” Trump replied. “I’m rather unfamiliar with this role as well … It has been a little under 100 days and it has just been a remarkable and incredible journey.”

The tough questions kept coming, with an audible groan from the audience Trump said her father was a “tremendous champion of supporting families and enabling them to thrive” while praising President Trump for supporting paid leave policies.

The moderator stepped in following the room’s reaction, prompting her to ask if the president was an “empowerer of women” despite his history of lewd comments towards them.

“I know from personal experience, and I think the thousands of women who have worked with and for my father for decades when he was in the private sector are a testament to his belief and solid conviction in the potential of women and their ability to do the job as well as any man,” the mother of three responded.

 

“As a daughter, I can speak on a very personal level,” she added, according to Politico. “I grew up in a house where there was no barriers to what I could accomplish beyond my own perseverance and tenacity. That’s not an easy thing to do, he provided that for us.”

Trump said that her father treated her exactly the same way he treated her two brothers, Donald Jr. and Eric.

“There was no difference,” she said.

Trump’s schedule in Berlin on Tuesday also includes a visit to the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe and the W-20 gala dinner.

Nick Graham Dressing Bill Nye for Netflix Series

Nick Graham has expanded his relationship with Bill Nye and is dressing the scientist and educator for his new Netflix series, “Bill Nye Saves the World.”
The 13-episode show started on Friday.
“Bill is one of those rare personalities that combines a strong compassionate message with his slightly irreverent, but always brilliant observations of the world,” Graham said. “Besides that, he has always had an enormous sense of style that he has made his own, and so all I had to do was take a bit further.”
Nye said: “Nick is incredibly creative and it’s reflected in his clothes. I love wearing his suits. And besides, they fit me right off the rack.”
On each episode of the Netflix show, Nye will take on a specific science-related topic or concept with panel discussions and correspondent reports. The set, which is designed as a modern science lab, is an extension of his popular series in the Nineties, “Bill Nye the Science Guy.”
Nye also walked in Nick Graham’s fall men’s show, titled “Life on Mars,” in January, which garnered over 1 billion impressions and 385,000 likes for Nye on Instagram, according to Graham.
The designer collaborated with Nye on a limited-edition collection of quirky, science-themed bow ties in November of 2015,

American Consultants Rx states that it will continue to strive to assist those in need.

Here’s What Dustin Hoffman Has To Say About Famous ‘I’m Walkin’ Here!’ Line

Dustin Hoffman and filmmaker Noah Baumbach met up at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival Monday to discuss the latter’s career and throw in some tidbits about their upcoming film, “The Meyerowitz Stories.” But, inevitably, some flashbacks to the actor’s time on camera snuck in.

During a Q&A session at the end of their conversation, an audience member told Hoffman that he was a big fan of the actor’s iconic “I’m walkin’ here!” scene alongside Jon Voight in 1969’s “Midnight Cowboy.” A quick refresher: Voight and Hoffman are crossing a New York City street when a cab nearly hits the actors. Hoffman delivers his famous line and serves up a few choice knocks on the cab’s hood.

The best part? It was all a result of Hoffman’s quick thinking.

During the Tribeca Talk, Hoffman explained that he and Voight were doing many takes of the scene, trying to time it just right so they wouldn’t have to wait for a light at the crosswalk. 

“We finally get it at the — whatever it is — 50th take, and we’re so happy, we can feel it, at this point in the dialogue, Jon and I. We’re at the corner, and it turns green, and we’re able to keep walking, and a fucking cab has hit us,” Hoffman explained, pausing for the crowd’s laughter.  

“The truth is, this is the way the brain works: What was in my head was, ‘We’re makin’ a movie here!’ And then just as I’m about to say that, I realize, ‘Oh, you can’t do that,’ the brain changes it to, ‘I’m walkin’ here!’ What was really being said, for me, was, ‘We’re shooting here!’”

And thus movie history — and the enduring indifference of New York taxicabs — was solidified.

4 Ways Researchers Are Pushing The Boundaries Of Making Babies

Infertility treatment is more common than ever, thanks to technology. 

More than 70,000 babies were born through in-vitro fertilization in 2014, according to the latest Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data. That’s an increase of nearly 10,000 babies, compared with five years earlier.

Men and women are increasingly likely to seek medical help for reasons that include reduced stigma and more employers offering coverage for IVF. But one big reason for the trend is clear: Fertility doctors are getting better at making babies.

“Science is moving at a pace that’s very different than any of us could have ever imagined,” said Dr. Eli Adashi, a Brown University professor of reproductive medical science who specializes in ovarian biology.

Researchers have fine-tuned the best ways to stimulate a woman’s ovaries, grow embryos in the lab and pick the best ones to transfer to her uterus. Improved success rates have made IVF ― once considered an experimental procedure ― the gold standard of fertility treatment.

Here are some of the most inspiring breakthroughs that promise to rock fertility treatment further over the next decade:

1. Babies Made From Three People

For the estimated 12,000 women in the U.S. who risk passing down devastating mitochondrial diseases, including neurological disorders, and heart and kidney problems, a new procedure can be the difference in deciding to have children or not. 

Scientists have found a way to remove the DNA nucleus from an egg with bad mitochondria (the energy-generating part of our cells), and place it into a donor’s healthy egg, from which the nucleus has been removed. The egg is then fertilized in the lab with sperm from a third person. 

”It’s a huge breakthrough because we’re able to separate out the part of the egg that’s causing the problems,” said Susan Solomon, CEO of the New York Stem Cell Foundation.

The controversial procedure has already been approved in the United Kingdom, and it’s under review at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Supporters say it doesn’t really mix the genes of two women, since there’s not much DNA contained in mitochondria. In the future, it might be possible to use the technology to help rehabilitate less robust eggs from older women or women who prematurely went through menopause.

2. Fewer Twins From Better Embryo Freezing

For the last decade, the buzz about freezing eggs has been focused on women stashing away eggs to prolong fertility. But about five years ago, fertility doctors adopted a flash-freezing technology called vitrification to preserve embryos of women undergoing IVF.

It’s trickier to freeze five-day-old blastocyst embryos of about 80 to 100 cells than it is to freeze a single-cell egg. But the vitrified embryos have a better chance of surviving the warming process and resulting in a pregnancy than embryos frozen the old way.

The big payoff: Fertility doctors can convince patients who want twins to aim for a single pregnancy, and to save their remaining frozen embryos to try for a sibling later. 

“By transferring a single embryo at a time, we can achieve safer pregnancies and healthier moms and babies,” said Dr. Alan Penzias, fertility doctor at Boston IVF and professor at Harvard Medical School.

3. Cheaper Genetic Testing

Couples worried they could pass on genetic diseases, such as cystic fibrosis, to their offspring have long agonized whether to add thousands more to their IVF bill to have an embryo biopsied and tested for defects.

New technology known as next-generation sequencing allows scientists to study an embryo’s DNA with better accuracy, and to identify a much longer list of potential disorders. And, instead of studying a handful of embryos at a time, technicians can put a barcode on each embryo and test 200 at once.

“It can bring down the cost from thousands of dollars to hundreds,” said Penzias. “If you had told me in medical school that someday we could see an IVF couple, test their embryos and routinely help them avoid passing on a lethal disease, I would have never believed it.”

4. Making Eggs And Sperm From Skin Cells

For years, we’ve heard about “potential” applications of stem-cell science.

The future is finally getting close. The tantalizing idea of creating eggs from skin cells that have been programmed into embryonic-like stem cells was realized in mice by Japanese scientists a couple years ago. And here’s the kicker: Those mice gave birth to pups that also reproduced. The ability to make artificial eggs and sperm would be a “revolution” for reproductive science, said Adashi.

“It would eliminate IVF as we know it,” Adashi said. “You wouldn’t need to stimulate ovaries or retrieve eggs. You’d simply donate a cheek swab. It’s still a long way off, but people are working on it.”

In the meantime, doctors agree that the next revolution should focus on making fertility medicine accessible to more patients. Insurance plans are still not required to cover fertility treatment in most states.

Dude Tumbles Down Stairs And Into Prom Fail History

The internet, like high school, never lets you forget.

Austin Cooper was descending stairs with girlfriend Jordyn McManus for a dramatic debut before the prom Saturday when his feet slid out from under him. He tumbled on his butt, falling into the clutches of the viral gods.

That’s because on Sunday, McManus, from Palm Beach, Florida, tweeted the embarrassing moment. 

Austin and I were trying to make a grand entrance for our family and friends for prom,” McManus told Mashable. “Obviously it didn’t go as planned.”

Cooper wasn’t seriously injured. “My back was hurting during the whole night of prom but I stuck with it and manned up,” he said to the website.

A History Of All-Girl Bands And The Rock World That Tried To Keep Them Out

It was 1964 and singer Genyusha “Goldie” Zelkowitz had a problem. The all-girl band she formed in 1962 with drummer Ginger Bianco, Goldie and the Gingerbreads, had a major label record contract and an upcoming Las Vegas stint ― but the bassist, Nancy Peterman, had just told the band that she was pregnant. She’d formed an attachment to the organist of a band they’d been performing with; things had taken their natural course. In the 1960s, birth control for unmarried women was still illegal in certain states. Roe v. Wade was not yet a glimmer in the Supreme Court’s eye, and an attempt to get her an illicit procedure fell through. The situation was unsurprising, and the conclusion was unfortunate: Peterman had to leave the band.

Zelkowitz, who now goes by Genya Ravan, practically explodes with laughter remembering the incident now, 50 years later, during a phone conversation. “She kept saying she was ‘so lonely’!” Ravan hoots. “Had I known I would have bought her a vibrator.” A vibrator and a career, or a sexual partner and parenthood: That’s a choice The Beatles likely never had to make.

For Ravan, who was determined to make it in the music business, settling down wasn’t an option. After forming Goldie and the Gingerbreads, she saw the branding benefits of keeping the lineup all women, to capitalize on the exotic appeal of an all-girl rock ’n’ roll band. But over the years, they lost members, and it was difficult to fill all the parts in the group with women.

“A lot of the girls that were canned down the line … they wanted to have a family, they wanted to have children,” said Ravan. “There’s no room for that here.”

Womanhood used to usher women off the stage in fairly obvious, biological ways. But it’s 2017. Seven years ago, Pink put in a rousing performance at the American Music Awards while expecting a baby. In February of this year, Beyoncé performed gravity-defying moves during a Grammy performance while pregnant ― with twins.

Nonetheless, pockets of the music world remain startlingly male. Our greatest pop stars today might be women, but in instrument-heavy rock ― indie, punk, metal and beyond ― the standard-issue band is still a group of three to six guys. Less common: a group of male musicians with a female vocalist, or even a female keyboardist or bassist. Least common: a band comprised primarily or entirely of female musicians.

The music internet periodically offers up listicles of all-women bands to check out, which feature a common core cast of incredible indie groups: Hinds, Ex Hex, The Prettiots, Chastity Belt, Warpaint and so on. Plenty has been written about the the chart-topping pop-rock sister group Haim, but even in a diverse musical landscape of EDM, hip-hop, pop and hybrid music, a wide variety of all-male bands still flourishes. Why is the all-female band relatively elusive?

One might be tempted to blame women as a group. Perhaps we’re biologically uninterested in playing electric guitar, much like advanced algebra and video games. Maybe there simply aren’t girls out there with the chops and dedication to succeed. But ― much as with mathematics and video games ― a closer look at the picture suggests that the problem isn’t that women are rejecting rock. It’s that rock is rejecting women.

But how is the music world fencing women out? Picking on the visible gatekeepers is easy, and in many ways fair: Record labels, magazines and music festivals don’t tend to give women artists an equal platform. Last year, a HuffPost analysis of the gender breakdown of acts at 10 major festivals over the past five years found that the vast majority of performers were male. “[A]ll-male acts make up the overwhelming majority of festival lineups, ranging from 66 percent of all performers (Outside Lands and Governors Ball) to 93 percent (Electric Zoo),” HuffPost Women’s Editor Alanna Vagianos concluded. An LA Times piece on Coachella’s specific problems with women noted that, at the time it was written, only one female act had ever headlined the festival, out of over 40 headliners in its history. 

Music media seems little better. In 2016, KQED Arts pointed out in December, exactly zero women made the cover of Rolling Stone ― no Beyoncé, no Rihanna, no Alessia Cara, no Hayley Williams. Women who do snag coverage by major outlets routinely see their musical chops downplayed in favor of their sex appeal, or wind up relegated to special women’s issues or listicles.

The problem, though, starts way before the point when the organizers of Coachella or Bonnaroo are scouting acts, and before magazines are picking out cover models. This isn’t an excuse for their paltry lineups of female artists; it’s just to say that there are other pressures guiding tastemakers toward men and guiding women to give up rock stardom.

Bands made up of all women are rare not because of a lack of talent, dedication or interest, but because women have been siphoned out of the pipeline at nearly every step of the way.

Getting The Band Together

For young boys, forming a crappy band is as elemental a part of growing up as playing baseball, or quitting the baseball team to spend more time smoking pot. If you’ve ever known a handful of teenage boys, you probably know at least one who’s been in a jam band inspired by Phish, or a dude rock band inspired by Dave Matthews, or an indie rock band inspired by Weezer. Guys in bands stand to benefit from male bonding, creative self-expression, and cultivating a rock god image to attract romantic interests. As Alex Pall of The Chainsmokers told Billboard in 2016, “Even before success, pussy was number one … I wanted to hook up with hotter girls.”

The flip side, however, is that this gendered adolescent experience rarely includes a space for girls to be anything but doting audiences and, at worst, “pussy.”

To me that was just kind of a given, guys were always starting bands and playing guitar in their bedrooms,” Allison Wolfe, the former lead singer of riot grrrl band Bratmobile and, most recently, Sex Stains, told me. She grew up in Olympia, home of artsy, crunchy Evergreen State College in Washington State, in the midst of the burgeoning ‘90s DIY punk scene. “I went to a lot of punk shows and saw guys playing. Olympia and Eugene were cool, not super macho like a lot of other places, but it still made me feel like I couldn’t really be a part of it.”

Suzie Zeldin, of the indie band The Narrative, spent her teenage years attending hardcore shows across the country, in Long Island, New York, that were packed with both male and female fans ― but vanishingly few female artists. “It was pretty rare actually to see a girl onstage,” she recalled.

And this was in the late ‘80s to early aughts. Decades ago, when rock ’n’ roll was really taking off, the scene was almost entirely male. “You go back to the ‘60s, and you’re talking about the dark ages of women in music, because the light that you’re putting out, there’s nothing to reflect it back,” said June Millington, co-founder and lead guitarist of the pioneering 1970s band Fanny. “You had to have the courage to walk into that cave that was completely dark.”

Her bandmate, drummer Alice DeBuhr, was blunt: “We didn’t think of ourselves as the beginning of or part of a tradition of women musicians. Because there weren’t any.” 

As with any boys’ club, some determined and talented women have always fought their way in. But bands aren’t just about individual moxie. Forming a band requires collaboration. As a teenage bassist in Australia, music writer Anwen Crawford, author of a New Yorker article titled “The World Needs Female Rock Critics,” wanted that classic, adolescent band experience. The only problem? “I could never find other girls to play with, in those crucial years when you’re forming bands,” she told me. “Your teacher is likely to be male, your peers are likely to be male. It’s quite isolating.”

Just playing with her male peers wasn’t a solution either, she pointed out: “The boys around me didn’t really take me seriously, or thought I was a novelty.”

For many years, and even, to some extent, today, women who did seriously pursue rock music were less likely to find a thriving community of female peers to play with. Female stars like P.J. Harvey, Joan Jett and Stevie Nicks, Crawford noted, typically ended up as solo artists or the sole women in mostly male bands. After Goldie and the Gingerbreads disbanded in 1967, Ravan joined a mostly-male band and later built a solo career.

The creeping, pervasive assumption that little boys learn drums and grow up to be rock stars while little girls play Barbies and grow up to be groupies can isolate and stifle young girls who do pursue music, or it can simply delay their start. Many talented female musicians don’t begin their careers until early adulthood, at the age when young people are exploring who they really are outside of their rigidly defined peer groups. By then, many of their male peers have been mucking around with their instruments and amateur bands for a decade ― but that gap isn’t an insurmountable obstacle.

Augusta Koch, the guitarist and vocalist of the pop-punk band Cayetana, readily admits that she “didn’t know how to play guitar” when Cayetana was born five years ago. Koch and her bandmates were all out of college and dreaming of starting a band when they met at a party in Philadelphia. They decided to join forces and polished their skills together, through years of intense solo and band practice.

Mindy Abovitz, drummer and founder of Tom Tom Magazine, started her first band in college, not long after she’d surreptitiously begun to learn drums. It would have made zero sense to be in a band with a guy at that time, because all my guy friends who were musicians had been in bands since they were 12,” she told me.

“I played music in school band, clarinet and bass clarinet, but it wasn’t until much later that I thought I could do something like be in a band,” recalled Bratmobile’s Wolfe. “But I think I was very lucky to grow up in Olympia.” In the midst of a music scene that prided itself on counter-culturalism and anti-professionalism,anyone could do anything, and it would be considered music,” she said.

Wolfe went to Eugene to attend the University of Oregon, but many weekends she’d return to Olympia with her friend and future bandmate, Molly Neuman, to hang around the music scene. They met Kathleen Hanna, then a student at Evergreen. Wolfe began to notice that women around her were forming their own bands ― and not cute, smiley bands. One day, the summer before college, she peeked into Hanna’s art gallery, Reko Muse, and saw a band rehearsal in progress. “There was Kathleen, onstage,” recalled Wolfe, “and she was just yelling at the top of her lungs, with her veins popping out of her neck, and her face was all red … It was really confrontational, and intense.” Hanna’s band, Bikini Kill, ended up becoming early supporters of Wolfe and Neuman’s nascent group.

Wolfe and Neuman wanted to be involved in the scene ― they were already referring to themselves as a band around Olympia ― but they didn’t actually begin writing and performing music until a friend asked them to play a show he was booking. Despite Bratmobile’s slapdash beginnings, their first show was a rousing success.

“I don’t think it would have happened outside the Olympia scene, because I don’t think we would have had the encouragement,” she admitted. “People would have laughed us off the stage. But instead we had Bikini Kill there cheering us on.”

Keeping The Band Together

Getting an all-girl band together is a magical achievement, but it’s only step one. Rock bands are notoriously fragile things. Internal power struggles, ego trips and artistic disagreements tear many of them apart. For women, though, the stress of fending off inappropriate behavior, condescension and disdain rooted in their gender often ends up compounding the ordinary struggles faced by every band.

Having overcome years of overt or implicit discouragement to choose a musical career, female musicians face exhausting assumptions: That they don’t understand their own gear or craft; that, if they came later to mastering the art form, they are perpetual amateurs; that they’re just hanging around the scene to get male attention. Cayetana’s drummer, Kelly Olsen, pointed out that “women getting into relationships with musicians… get looked at in a very different way than men that do. And I know that we have been judged by who we date, like, you’re just doing that to get close to this band. And it’s like, actually, no! I have my own self and my own power in my own scene.” 

The assumption, however, generally remains that women don’t belong onstage unless they’re accompanied and overseen by men. Lydia Night, the teenage frontwoman of The Regrettes, caught the rock fever early ― she’s been playing guitar since the age of six and has not only attended years of music classes but performed in several bands. Nonetheless, she’s noticed, sound technicians often assume she can’t handle her own equipment. The sexism is difficult to ignore thanks to one simple fact: The band has one male member, drummer Maxx Morando. “We’ve met so many amazing sound people,” she told me, “but we’ve met so many annoying sound people who just assume that … oh, of course Maxx knows how to set up his drums, but she must not know how to set up her amp.”

Though many of the women I spoke to said that they felt respected and appreciated by their male peers in the industry, the spaces men make for themselves aren’t always welcoming. Women might be left out of bands and tours by men who want to keep the fratty vibe, or who don’t want their significant others to worry about infidelity. “Tour buses are definitely places where women get excluded,” Abovitz said, referencing a situation she’d recently advised another female musician about. “They don’t get hired. They just get left off.” Her acquaintance and the other woman in her band weren’t invited on a bus due to this reasoning; in the end, they had to drive themselves separately for the entire tour.

When it’s not the men directly involved in the industry, it’s the press. Music journalism, a field that was carved out and is still largely populated by white men, has historically been hostile at worst, and patronizing at best, to female artists. “The assumption [was] that interviewers and other people could treat us with condescension and that was the norm,” says Millington. “That condescension was pretty lethal, because it can come at you in so many different ways, even the subtle ways cut ― at least 50 percent, 60 percent or more of the time, the condescension had to be there even if [critics] said they liked us.”

Critics and journalists might cover a girl band with a tone of surprise that a group of women could even play competently, or fixate on the band members’ sex appeal and gendered characteristics.  

Plus, female artists were played off each other, creating the impression that in the massive rock universe, there was only room for one woman star. “It was never about the music,” Raven remembered of her early reviews. “They always had to compare me with somebody.” Usually, the times being what they were, that somebody was Janis Joplin. In 1969, legendary rock critic Robert Christgau described her as “this group’s resident Janis Joplin” in a review of Ten Wheel Drive, a jazz-rock band she joined after Goldie and the Gingerbreads broke up. Joplin comes up yet again in his review of one of her solo albums, “Urban Desire,” in addition to the accusation that “she oversings.” (Christgau’s oeuvre is a trove of chauvinistic criticism, which is rarely subtle; he takes pains to graciously judge that Fanny’s “execution is competent enough.”)

In the early days of rock ’n’ roll, even audiences who presumably showed up to enjoy these shows were sexist by default. Millington and DeBuhr both vividly recalled one particular compliment from male listeners that seemed to dog Fanny throughout its run: “Not bad for chicks!”

No matter where they performed, “that was the best compliment we could get through the early ‘70s. Isn’t that incredible?” Millington told me. “And we almost always smiled and said ‘Thank you.’” Worse, Fanny often confronted the assumption that they couldn’t play their own songs. “I can’t remember how many times people asked us, ‘Who were the male musicians playing on the album?’” DeBuhr remembered. To a group of women who practiced and performed tirelessly and who took pride in their music, this question was particularly galling.

In the punk era, disdainful audiences could be more aggressive. Wolfe half-seriously insisted that her nearsightedness and poor hearing protected her ego from the vitriol of sexist crowds. “A lot of the time I was saved by the fact that I couldn’t see or hear what was going on in the audience,” she said. After Bratmobile’s second show, Kathleen Hanna met them offstage and asked if they were OK. Unbeknownst to them, some “scary metalhead dudes” in the crowd had been hollering death threats at the band throughout their set.

Harder to ignore: An incident at a show during Wolfe’s time in the late-’90s band Cold Cold Hearts, when a man grabbed her ass while she performed. “I actually started laughing, because it was just too shocking,” she said.

Some women involved with the music world saw a relatively egalitarian, non-threatening environment, at least in specific scenes. Punk historian Gillian McCain, co-author of the oral history Please Kill Me, pushed back on the idea that the early punk scene could be sexually exploitative. “The girls were enjoying their sexual freedom as much as the boys were,” she wrote in an email. “None of the women we interviewed saw themselves as victims.”

But there’s no denying that some women in the music industry have been victimized, and that the experience can directly affect their careers. Pop star and songwriter Kesha, the most infamous recent example, follows in a long line of women whose voices were snuffed out thanks to male exploitation. Due to her ironclad contract and current legal battle with her former producer, Dr. Luke, whom she has accused of sexual and other abuse, Kesha is reported to be sitting on at least 22 new songs she’s not allowed to bring out. 

In 2015, the original bassist of The Runaways, Jackie Fuchs, accused the band’s late manager, Kim Fowley, of raping her soon after she joined the band in 1975. She quit in 1977. In a HuffPost Highline feature, Jason Cherkis documented multiple alleged victims of Fowley’s sexual violence, primarily Fuchs and Kari Krome, a precocious songwriter Fowley began grooming at just 13 years old. By the time Cherkis spoke to Krome, some 40 years later, she had been out of the music business since her teen years, instead writing boxes full of unpublished lyrics. “[S]he couldn’t shake the idea that Fowley never believed in her talent, that he only wanted to sleep with her,” he wrote. “She ended up abandoning her dreams of becoming a successful songwriter.” 

Though it’s impossible to say how many women’s careers have been stunted or destroyed by sexual predation, even those who remain and succeed continue to face gendered criticism and abuse. With few other options, women musicians often embrace determinedly nonchalant attitudes toward their harassers and critics. “It’s hard to play a show when someone screams ‘you can’t play guitar’ or ‘you’re hot,’ but at the same time,” said Koch, “we try to not let it ruin us.”

During the riot grrrl movement of the ‘90s, women on the scene tried to find safety in solidarity. After the butt-grabbing incident at her Cold Cold Hearts show, Wolfe remembered, “The amazing thing is I didn’t have to do anything. It was a girl power show; all the women bounced him out in two seconds.” By urging “girls to the front” and forefronting feminism, riot grrrl created a safer space for women in rock ― at least temporarily.  In other times, in other cases, playing through the pain simply led to burnout. “I left Fanny in ‘73, because I was just tired,” Millington told me.

When women aren’t kept out of rock genres through sheer discouragement, exclusion or harassment, the malleable nature of the genre can also be used against them. Women artists may be edited out of the rock annals simply through gendered perceptions ― what men play is rock and what women play is pop. Nowhere is this more evidently the case than with black women, who, like black men, often find themselves reflexively categorized as R&B simply because of their race. As Rolling Stone’s Brittany Spanos wrote in 2016, the white appropriation of rock has been so total that it “box[es] black performers into R&B and soul categories no matter how genre-bending they are.”

“Though largely forgotten in our whitewashed annals of history,” LaTonya Pennington wrote in The Establishment, “black women helped create the genre of rock, which has its roots in blues, country, jazz, gospel and R&B.” Just as many pioneers of rock were black men ― Chuck Berry, Fats Domino, Little Richard and Bo Diddley ― many of the early female pioneers, like “Godmother of Rock ’n’ Roll” Sister Rosetta Tharpe, were black. White women were also often complicit in undercutting black women performers. The first recording of “Piece of My Heart” was performed by Erma Franklin ― known as an R&B singer ― yet it was white singer Janis Joplin ― known as a rocker ― whose rendition rose to fame.

The contributions of black women have been routinely swept under the rug and written out of rock history. But Pennington, Spanos and other critics have seen black women reclaiming their place in the rock genre in recent years, from undeniably rock acts such as The Alabama Shakes (fronted by vocalist and guitarist Brittany Howard) to indie darling Santigold to, yes, Beyoncé.

In “Lemonade,” the pop icon dabbled in country and rock ’n’ roll to great effect. “Beyoncé… provided one of the year’s most memorable rock moments with ‘[Don’t] Hurt Yourself,’” Crawford argued. “Here we have a song by a black woman artist (Beyoncé), who has not typically been ‘seen’ as a rock musician, which appropriates white rock masculinity in order to emphasize that the origins of rock music (in the blues) lie with black women, whose music was, in turn, appropriated by white men.” The all-important visuals work fluidly with the song to reinforce this message, she added. “The film clip … which begins and ends with a young black woman sitting behind a drum kit, makes literally visible this lineage of largely disregarded and historically invisible black female musicianship.”

Passing The Torch

With all the obstacles and forms of discouragement women in rock have faced over the decades, rock is no longer the coolest nor freshest genre. Does it even matter how inclusive it is to women anymore? Crawford, though she qualifies that it’s important for women to have equal opportunity in any genre, suggests women look elsewhere. The masculinization of the scene has been so entrenched, and the genre itself seems so archaic, that she “wouldn’t necessarily advise [a young woman today] to pick up a guitar. I think of rock music like the realist novel ― it’s fun, people are still doing it, but why?” And though “other genres have their own problems,” she pointed out, there’s a less lengthy and calcified history of exclusion to undo. Women have been making huge amounts of exciting, boundary-pushing music in electronic music, in pop and beyond ― rock just hasn’t been as welcoming.

Conversely, McCain downplayed the severity of the obstacles faced by women in punk rock ― though the punk scene was predominantly male. “Unfortunately that’s the case in a lot of vocations,” she wrote in an email. “I think there were barriers to both men and women making it in punk music! […] In some ways the women may have held an advantage as far as getting more media attention.” McCain cited breakout female stars of the era, from Patti Smith to Tina Weymouth, who remain popular today. As Ravan realized in the 1960s, being a woman in a man’s world could be a great marketing tool.  

Still, staking a visible claim to rock music isn’t just an ego trip for marginalized artists: It clears the path to stardom for those that follow. Not only does it make it easier for audiences and critics to conceptualize, for example, black and female artists as rockers, but it helps future musicians to avoid the derision, harassment and sense of alienation that has afflicted many.

Even today, women deal with gendered belittlement and abuse on tour. But audiences have seen enough female rock musicians to mitigate the level of scorn faced by individual artists. Where Fanny and Goldie and the Gingerbreads often felt like their gender was so unusual that it was simply treated as a gimmick ― the only reason people bothered to book them as opposed to the many male bands ― women who are currently early in their music careers see a more diverse scene. Night told me that The Regrettes perform alongside “a lot of women … super badass women.”

Zeldin has also toured with a number of bands with one or more woman. “There are a lot of bands that have at least some female presence. It’s nice to see that happening more and more,” she said.

Part of the more welcoming environment for women and gender non-binary individuals in rock has to do with changing norms, like a better understanding of the harm caused by sexual assault. Recalling her time in Fanny in the ‘70s, DeBuhr describes a scene that was not only permissive of male urges, but that lacked a language to talk about it critically. Though sometimes she felt deeply uncomfortable with the sexualized atmosphere, she told me, “At the time, I don’t think we called it sexual harassment … It was creepy, I didn’t like it.” Creepy behavior might still be fairly common in the music industry, but women musicians do have the vocabulary to talk about it. Take music publicist Heathcliff Berru, once a power player in the field. He fell precipitously from grace after a raft of female musicians and industry professionals ― most notably Amber Coffman of Dirty Projectors ― publicly accused him of various forms of sexual misconduct.

Even the idea that women can be rebels and artists as well as homemakers, mothers and playthings needed to emerge over the past few decades. Not only were the first all-girl bands were presented as gimmicks, they were often presented as sexualized ones. Fowley notoriously positioned The Runaways as a clique of sexy jailbait rather than serious musicians ― and that’s a temporary brand at best.

During high school, in 1960s Iowa, DeBuhr played in a girl band called Women. (“We were a gimmick,” explained. “That was the attraction, it was all girls.”) While at an Iowan club, teenage DeBuhr saw a female drummer in a jazz trio. The drummer was older, “maybe 40,” she recalled. “I said, ‘I will quit when I‘m 30. I won’t be an old lady playing the drums.” She did end up hanging up her drumsticks not long after Fanny broke up. Now, she says, she regrets it.

To a young DeBuhr, that solitary, middle-aged woman drummer may have seemed like an oddity at the time; the lack of visible female rock icons inevitably perpetuates the assumption that women don’t belong onstage, unless they’re go-go dancers or sultry vocalists. Even serious bands like Fanny and the Gingerbreads faced pressure to go onstage scantily clad ― which they resisted to varying degrees.

Perhaps the most important evolution has been the determined, serious incursion of women into the genre, a genre that at first seemed to have no place for them. Though Ravan and Millington cite a few forerunners as inspirations ― Etta James, Lillian Briggs ― they saw their own music as something different. They were playing rock ’n’ roll in bands, just like the boys.

Today, budding musicians have a pantheon of women rockstars to draw inspiration from and emulate. “When I was five, my dad took me to a Donnas concert … and I just fell in love with it,” Night told me. “The turning point for me ― I think I was 10 ― my mom took me to see a movie about the drummer of Hole. I started listening to a lot of Hole, Bikini Kill, Babes in Toyland.” 

A push for mostly all-women bands may be unlikely today because, in a more inclusive scene, female musicians see less of a need to huddle together. When Night initially fell in love with The Donnas, she longed to start an all-girl band; now, she says, she doesn’t even think about gender when forming a band. Zeldin, who has always worked with male musicians, felt the same. “I’d totally be down to do a girl band,” she told me. But she wouldn’t be motivated to do sojust because it would be all girls.”

The success of “girl rock” can come in waves. For groups like Fanny and Bratmobile, being all women was part of the point; at those times, it felt like both safety in solidarity and a way of making political statement. “If the whole point was giving voice to girls, then yeah, we wanted to play with other girls,” said Wolfe. After the overtly feminist, but flawed, riot grrrl scene faded, punk and indie rock seemed to contract around men again.

“I feel like riot grrrl ended in the mid-’90s, and by the late-‘90s there was a lot of backlash,” said Wolfe. “Suddenly there were a lot fewer girl bands in the punk scene, and it was like, what happened?” The backlash to riot grrrl, which she concedes had its own problems, still felt “like sexism. Or just dissing feminism.”

Though juggernaut all-women bands like Sleater-Kinney arose from and survived riot grrrl, they were more the exception than the rule. By the early aughts, critics were commenting on the almost startling sexism of the ascendant emo and punk scene. Andy Greenwald’s Nothing Feels Good: Punk Rock, Teenagers, and Emo noted the dearth of women on popular emo labels, as well as the overtly resentful and objectifying view emo artists took of women: “Now emo songwriters were one-sided victims of heartbreak, utterly wronged and ready to sing about it, with the women having no chance to respond.”

In an essay on emo misogyny from her 2015 book The First Collection of Criticism by a Living Female Rock Critic, titled “Where the Girls Aren’t,” music journalist and critic Jessica Hopper remembered growing up in the era of riot grrrl. “For me, even as a teenage autodidact who thought her every idea was worthy of expression and an audience,” she wrote, “it did not occur to me to start a band until I saw other women in one.” Watching female fans at emo shows where all-male artists sang about cardboard-cutout women who had hurt them, she thought, “I don’t want these front row girls to miss that. I don’t want girls leaving clubs denied of encouragement and potential.” 

The clock couldn’t simply be turned back to the 1950s after the riot grrrl era ended, though. Bikini Kill records were still out there. We knew about the Bangles. Zeldin, who grew up frequenting the emo and hardcore scene, took the rarity of women onstage at those shows as a challenge. “I think that’s probably partially what drove me to do it, aside from having the inclination,” she told me. “It was more like ― I don’t see girls doing so let’s do it.”

Abovitz, who launched a whole publication to cover female drummers, believes fervently in the power of modeling. “There’s this sort of thing that every female drummer I know does: Go out and play a show not just for herself, but for every other female drummer,” she said. “You just want to do it, so that people will get over it already.”

The scene already looks less homogenous than it did 10 years ago, despite the daunting machismo of the aughts. Earlier generations of women musicians have sought to further their gains by promoting their own legacies, and even by educating new generations. Millington started the Institute for the Musical Arts (IMA) with her partner, Ann F. Hackler, in 1986. The institute runs rock camps for young girls, among other initiatives to support women in music. Camps like the IMA’s have begun to bear fruit ― like Night’s The Regrettes, formed by three girls and a boy who met in an LA School of Rock.

Though the genre has put up walls against women for decades, women have refused to stay out ― and the more they refuse, the more open the music industry becomes to all women.  

You gotta keep writing songs that speak out about this stuff, or keep being in bands, or whatever it is that you do,” said Wolfe. “Being there, inserting yourself in a space that isn’t common for women to be.”

Powerful Ad Reminds World Dads Are Parents, Too

Following up on its powerful ad about motherhood, Dove is celebrating dads with another emotional video.

The #RealDads ad for Baby Dove features video clips of dads with their kids to highlight the role they play in their children’s lives. 

The ad was inspired in part by research from Dove Men+Care brand. While mothers feel pressure to be perfect parents, fathers aren’t expected to be essential caregivers to their children. 

“Research tells us that the media focuses on fathers as ‘providers’ and ‘fixers’ over three times more often than as ‘emotional caregivers’ and over four times more often than a ‘daily caregiver,’ diminishing their role as parents ― when in fact, 97 percent of dads say they are involved in their child(ren)’s life and 7 in 10 see themselves as highly involved,” a Dove spokesperson told HuffPost.

Dove hopes this new campaign helps break down the stereotypes and preconceived notions that new parents face. 

As the captions state, “No matter which way you care for your baby, just know there’s no one ‘right’ way. Only our way. To #RealDads everywhere, trust your way.”

How Solange Handles The Pressure Of Having To Be A ‘Strong Woman’

Solange Knowles is just as human as the rest of us. 

In a Q&A with Cosmopolitan at a Coachella event this week, the Grammy-winning artist opened up about how even she feels the pressure that many women do in constantly having to be a “strong woman.” 

“We as women face a lot of challenges on a daily basis,” she said. “We have to stand firm in our walk and our intentions — but there are absolutely times when that weight feels too heavy, feels like a load that I just can’t bear that day.”

And like the rest of us, she’s had to find her own way of dealing with that burden.

Her solution? Art. 

“I try to work through that in my…art, whatever medium that might be,” she said.

“My live performance [which is going down in museums and festivals across the country] is based around the color red, and all the things that communicates as a woman to the world — fiery, really vocal, present, almost a kind of stubborn color — and redefining it as being very complex…Being able to express that complexity, [I’m getting] a lot better at that the older I’ve gotten.”

Fiery, vocal, present, and stubborn? Sounds good to us.
